This climbs an incipient crack to a nice finger crack, to the right of "Easy Corner". It was originally rated 5.10d.


Top rope.

You can lead this on trad gear. A blue #1 Metolius to a #3 C4. If you want to avoid hitting the ground at the start, you'll need to place some pro on "Left Crack." It's not quite runout on the face below the fingercrack at the top.

TR'd this today and really thought it was better than 1 star. Very enjoyable route with balancy moves on fairly good rock. My brother and I each climbed the top section differently. I agree with Josh's comments about leading this route. I may try that later after having TR'd it and scoped out the pro.
